1946 Documentary Viewing
Thursday, June 6th | 9:15am OR 6:30pm

This June Grace Avenue will be showing an important new documentary film called 1946: The Mistranslation that Shifted Culture.  This is a film about the first time the word “homosexual” was used in the translation of an English language Bible. It follows a group of people who journey to discover how and why that translation was used in the Revised Standard Version of the Bible.  It is an important film particularly as we begin Pride Month.  It is helpful in understanding some of the decisions made at our recent General Conference.  If you have ever been told that the Bible says “homosexuality is wrong”, then you will want to see this film before you simply acquiesce to that interpretation.  Come watch 1946 and decide for yourself.  We will view the film (about 92 minutes in length) and follow with discussion.

Childcare is available.
